We stopped by Volver yesterday as Jose Garces prepped for the first class of his Summer School at Volver. Garces is offering classes on Wednesdays and Thursdays this June and July to offer guests a different way to experience Volver as well as a way to spend some quality time with Garces Group chefs like James Beard Award winner Michael Laiskonis and Philadelphia native and Amada New York chef de cuisine, Justin Bogle.
Tickets are sold out for 9 of the classes already, so if any of the remaining classes appeal to you, like “Chimichurri to Romesco: Exploring the Latin Mother Sauces,” act quickly.
More plans from Jose Garces »
Jose Garces’ planned restaurant at 2401 Walnut Street finally has some details associated. The first floor restaurant will be called 24 and will feature “health-conscious wood fired fare.” The restaurant will offer a full bar and is aiming to open in the second quarter of 2016.
Garces and his culinary team will also have a research and development kitchen adjacent to 24.
In other Garces Group news, Amada New York is getting closer as final hires are being made. The first New York restaurant from the Iron Chef will be opening shortly with chef Justin Bogle at the helm.
And mark your calendars for Friday, March 18th. That’s the date of the Garces Foundation’s Annual Benefit.
